.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think we can do a lot better. i think governor romney certainly has a program to do that, he and certainly in ohio we have proven that it can be done. host: let us go to judith, on the democratic line. you are on. caller:

. we'll get into the particulars of virginia. how it matters and what it could tell us about the rest of the nation. the implications are many as virginia goes, well, is models for the rest of the nation may go. then there is the state of georgia. the polls have just closed there at 7:00 eastern and it, too, is too close to call. but then there is the state of indiana. "fox news" now projects governor mitt romney will win the state of indiana which president obama did win four years ago. that's a turnover. 5% of the votes in but the model suggests to us it is good gh to mitt romney according to the "fox news" decision team has won the state of indiana. "fox news" also projects governor romney will win in the bluegrass state kentucky with 4% of all precincts reporting. 2/3 of all voters are voting "fox news" ney and projects romney wins kentucky. outh too close to call in s carolina. none of the precincts are can project t we president obama will win in the state of vermont. six states where the polls have just closed. we've made calls in two of them. and in the others we can't yet mak

you very much for being with us here. >> thank you. it is good to be with you. >> what are you looking for tuesday? what are you keeping an eye on? >> everyone in journalism is looking at ohio. just like the candidates are examining ohio very closely. we're also looking very carefully at virginia in colorado. we did talk about virginia. trying to figure out these very close state. iowa was a state we have been watching. ohio looks like it is going more gracefully toward president obama. we will see that holds up by election night. then all those building blocks are to build after that. we are doing the same sort of examination that everybody is doing. >> 1 poll shows this dead heat. democrats are saying the republicans are chasing fulls gold. >> you have to wonder if it is a little too late there is definitely a hurricane santeedy element to all of this. that could definitely be something that even though you do not want to politicize a disaster, you could be looking at a lot of democratic voters are not coming to the polls because they cannot are they have other things going on. that
best do that in the u.s. senate right now? i thought about that with my wife and children, and they have been such wonderful supporters, and i realize there is a gridlock. we cannot allow it to continue. we cannot have the nation we want if senate and congress is gridlock. i decided my experience as a tough times mayor and governor were an experience i could bring to the table to make good things happened in partnership with others. that was 19 months ago. we have trouble more than 60,000 miles. we have recruited more than 50,000 donors, including a deer i hit and killed, so we gave up a windshield process required and in the process. this campaign has taught me now more than ever we need people who know how to be partners rather than just partisans. we are americans but virginians furs. i learn this when i was the mayor. we knew who the democrats and republicans were. we were bipartisan. as a mayor, we were able to build schools common on -- to build schools, to cut crime, to clean up the river, and we did it by working together. as governor, you get a four-year term. min
reporters on the trail for us are ed henry, our chief white house correspond who has followed the white house campaign and carl cameron who followed the romney campaign is live in boston. >> . >>> it's very, very close, they know it's a needle that needs to be thread, they are just wonder figure it can get done tonight, tomorrow or ever. >> carl cam cameron live with the camp tonight. let's go to ed henry. with the president's camp and live in chicago. hey ed. . >>> you have to be in line when the polls close right? you have to be in line when the polls close and if you are in line then you can stay in line and they promise you will be able to vote. that means people have been in line for at least four hours. how long was the line when they got there? it could have been longer than four hours. that's florida for you tonight. florida. it's always florida. there is the possibility of a recount in florida which frankly now mayor may not matter for the president but you have to do it. >> if it's with in 1% of each other. if you are talking about excitement of voters that's maybe your best
is live with us. >> the president did the last campaigning for himself and see if a future democratic president will bring it out like mr. obama brought out president clinton. he will have basketball game with friends and time at home and mr. obama will have dinner with the family before sitting down to watch the election returns. in ohio, battle ground state he visited more than any other and likely decide whether he will return to the white house. he was introduced by bruce springsteen and jay z . later in iowa, the state that his bid. spring steep and mr. obama got teary eyed as he thought about the past. >> you said yes, we can and we did. and we didn't know the challenges . we knew we would get through those challenges the same way the nation always has. with that determined unconquerable american spirit. >> now by tradition . both the president and mitt romney would be out of sight much of the day. mr. obama is doing satellite interviews with radio and tv stations and mr. mitt romney campaigning in ohio and pennsylvania. >> thank you so much. >> brian: for mitt romney that was a
plastic table for us. >> stephanie: shine that up for us. >> i am, i'm windexing that puppy. >> stephanie: i'm feeling happy clappy, how are you? >> i feel good. once you personally vote, i'll feel better. >> stephanie: once i have my sticker all will be right for the world. i'll be wearing my sticker and nothing else for the show today because i need to win the tart-off. >> can we get you two stickers? >> mitt and ann romney have voted. romney says he feels very, very good about his chances overall and great about ohio. he is now taking off for cleveland and pittsburgh. plenty of resources on line if you're still not entirely sure where you can vote today and when. one of the easiest and most fun is the google doodle. the company changes its logo for special occasions. click on a ballot, it takes you to a page to enter your address to find your polling place. the wall street currently has a site called what time do the polls close.com and has the opening times for all 50 states and washington d.c. voting is easier in some states than others, both for procedural reasons and logical reason
election headquarters. great to have you with us. all day long we've been watching grandmothers, first-time voters, rich people, poor people, blue collar workers, all the people who believe in america going to the polls, every state of our union today joining together at the ballot boxes, and we will be bringing you the results. we are here to tell you who won, why throughout this evening and what's next. it's your voice as we've been saying and your vote tonight. >> diane, it has been a long, bitter and expensive race. deadlocked most of the way and revealed an america divided in so many ways. tonight, all of you are going to tip the balance. >> and now we are ready to begin because we have three projections to make because the polls have closed in six states and we are ready to go. here it is. indiana, this state has switched, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to take indiana. kentucky, this is a very red state and governor romney has taken kentucky, as well, tonight. and vermon
entrance. >> reporter: joe leader oversees maintenance for the metropolitan transit authority. he showed us some of the damage at the hardest hit station, south ferry at the southern tip of manhattan. >> as much as the water has gone down, we're still two levels -- we're at the water till we get to the tracks? >> absolutely. >> reporter: it will take a week just to pump out the water. that's only the first step. >> the assessment afterwards will be very difficult because they'll have to be taken apart, elevators will have to be looked at, controls will have to be changed out. >> reporter: meantime, the city is doing what they can to relieve congestion, made much worse in lower manhattan where customers are still without power. new york's taxi rules were modified, allowing drivers to pick up more than one passenger at a time. mayor michael bloomberg announced that seven major routes into the city would be limited to vehicles carrying three or more people. >> i know it is inconvenient for a lot of people. but the bottom line is the streets can only handle so much. >> reporter: so we've seen s
. so much for that. john roberts is still with us. explain the rationale for what the romney team tells you in order for them to be victorious today. what key do they need to happen? >> reporter: they need their ground game to work. they need to rack em, stack em and get em out to the polls. there are a lot of states where president obama never left the states since the 2008 election. when you look at the early voting numbers in florida and ohio, obama has the advantage. but that advantage smaller in some cases by half of what it was in '08. does governor romney have a chance to take this? yes, he does. dose have a lot of work to do today if he hopes to get it? absolutely. bill: we want to move to chicago. martha: we saw a hug between mitt romney and tagg romney who has been instrumental throughout the course of this campaign. let's swing over to the other side of this huge decision for today. president obama will spend the day in his hometown of chicago. he has no public events scheduled today. held the last campaign rally ever in his political career last night in the state of iowa. t
also have a hotly contested u.s. senate race, and we're one hour before the polls open. you can see we already have a small line forming here at this polling place in alexandria. are you looking to beat the crowds here this morning? >> i did beat the crowds this morning. >> reporter: you're the first in line. >> i am. been here since 4:30 this morning. >> reporter: what's your strategy? were you a little worried about what's ahead in terms of lines? is >> yes. i have two kids, and they're off from school today. so i had to get out early. >> reporter: and you are. you're number two in line. >> i'm thankful. >> reporter: and it's chilly out here. certainly, you're going to want to bundle up before you head out to the polls. virginia is one of those battleground states that we've heard so much about. president obama won the old dominion four years ago, but mitt romney is pushing back hard. the latest polls show president obama ahead by one point, but it's unclear exactly who is going to take virginia. that poll is well within the margin of error. really who takes the old dominion is going

on why they vote the way they are. martha maccallum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting worse. three of ten says it stays the same for them. slightly more voters think governor romney would hand the economy better. slightly more v
roundtable, andrew baumann, ed goeas, thank you for being with us. pollsters, they say, this is the truth, it has always been equal parts art and science. guest: i do not know if i agree with that. it is more science and art, that is why we are paid to do what we do, and we think they are generally pretty accurate. that is why you see polls from different sides of the aisle, some polls have been different results. i think that there is a little bit of hyperbole to call it four pollsters. maybe they are having the worst week. guest -- host of this poll shows mitt romney being ahead six points -- host: this poll shows mitt romney ahead by six points in florida, another one showing obama up by five points.

correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yesterday, but here, voters can also register as well as vote on the same day. back in 2008, more than 1 in 10 voters in the badger state did that. that's what the obama campaign is focusing on. when the president talks in the 4:00 p.m. eastern hour, he's going to be trying to counter as he did in ohio, mitt romney's message about being the candidate of real change. he's been saying to his supporters that mitt romney is not about change, and also he's been trying to urge them to be patient, saying that the economic recovery is on the right track. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with everything deci
, listen, governor romney wants to return us to the very same policies that created the recession in the first place. when we were losing 800,000 jobs. he wants to return to those policies. that's the choice. do we build on the progress that we've made, and we have a lot more work to do. the president has a plan to continue to create jobs and grow the middle class. or do we take a risk and go back to the same policies that wrecked the economy?in that's all governor romney is offering. >> that's also the issue of how you've worked with the other side. governor romney has said all the president has done is attacked the other side and not worked with congress. even mayor bloomberg who endorsed the president for a second term said he was still disappointed by the president.g this is part of his remarks or his op-ed he wrote in that endorsement. in 2008, he writes, obama ran as a pragmatic problem solver and consensus builder. but as president, he devoted little time and effort to developing and sustaining a coalition of centrists which doomed hope for any real progress on illegal guns
